Expert Tips

To make chocolate shavings, pull a swivel-bladed vegetable peeler or thin, sharp knife across a block of chocolate. The curls will be easier to make if the chocolate is slightly warm (let it stand in a warm place for about 15 minutes before cutting). Use a toothpick to lift the curls and arrange them on pie.

Did you know? Haupia is a traditional coconut milk-based Hawaiian dessert.
